Updated to include tweets from schools thanking Central Office staff for helping out in the classroom.

It’s been all hands on deck for substitute teachers in Wake County this week due to the decision to schedule makeup days on what were previously the first three days of spring break.

Several Wake County school administrators have been serving as substitute teachers this week to help the schools out. While not all of the more than 1,500 teachers out Monday were classroom teachers who needed a sub, enough were that the help from central office was appreciated.

The situation isn’t likely to get better on the makeup days on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Some schools have tweeted their thanks to the Central Office staff who’ve helped out.

Stella Shelton, the school district’s former chief communications officer, gave a shout out Monday to her former colleagues for their service as subs this week.
